Happy Labor Day From Your Union!

29 August 2019

Happy Labor Day From Your Union!

 

In 1894, President Grover Cleveland made the first Monday of September an official national holiday, Labor Day.

Today, 125 years later, Labor Day is less about politics and policy and more about parades and picnics. But as we celebrate this long, well-deserved weekend with our families, friends, and loved ones, we owe it to the working people who came before us – and those who will come after us – to commemorate and celebrate the struggles undertaken by everyday working people to build a better future for all of us. Solidarity forever, sisters and brothers. Thank you for your work, and enjoy your Labor Day!

320 McLaren Macomb Employees Vote to Join OPEIU Local 40

Mt. Clemens, MI (Aug. 29, 2019) – A group of 320 clerical associates, couriers, critical care techs, dispatchers, lab assistants, patient access reps, patient sitters, pharmacy techs and several other classifications at McLaren Macomb hospital voted last night 172 to 113 to form a union with the Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU) Local 40. There were 35 additional ballots that remained unopened and were not determinative in the election outcome.

The vote proceeded despite McLaren’s efforts to defy the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Region 7’s recently issued Decision and Direction of Election by attempting to stop the election from proceeding and challenging nearly 100 voters, which would have resulted in a delay of election results. The NLRB, however, ordered the ballots to be opened and included in the total vote count.

Suicides among nurses are on the rise. Here's why one of America's fastest-growing jobs is facing a major crisis

Nurses — who typically work long hours and may face abuse on the job — are more likely to take their own lives, a new study found.

Researchers from the University of California at San Diego recently conducted what they said is the first nationwide investigation into nurse suicides in more than 20 years. They found that both male and female nurses had higher rates of suicide than men and women in the US.

Violence Against Nurses: A Major Issue in Healthcare

Violence Against Nurses: A Major Issue in Healthcare

BRIELLE BENYON

Workplace violence against nurses has significantly increased in the past decade or so, with some studies suggesting a 110% spike in the rate of violent injuries against healthcare workers in the last 10 years.

According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), there are 4 types of workplace violence in the healthcare field:

• Type I: The perpetrator has criminal intent and has no relationship to the business or its employees
• Type II: A customer, client, or patient becomes violent when receiving care or services
• Type III: employee-to-employee violence
• Type IV: Personal relationship violence

Working People Can’t Stop and Won’t Stop Fighting for a Better Future

Working People Can’t Stop and Won’t Stop Fighting for a Better Future

WHY LABOR UNIONS ARE INCREASING INFLUENCE

As negotiations entered their second month, Mike Pietros felt his optimism fade and his anger build. Pietros, fifty-three, had worked for Stop and Shop since 1998, when he was hired as a part-time meat cutter who floated from store to store. In twenty-one years, the North Providence resident had worked his way up to a meat manager’s position at the Cumberland store, and he now sat on the bargaining team for the United Food and Commercial Workers Union hammering out the terms of the next contract.

The grocery chain’s corporate parent, Ahold Delhaize, had posted a $2 billion profit in 2018, but its offers were paltry. The Netherlands-based company had proposed a small wage increase, but also a rise in workers’ health care premiums, and reductions to holiday pay and to pension benefits for new full-timers. The UFCW saw this fundamentally as a pay cut, and an attempt to create a two-tiered employee system. By the time the old contract expired on February 23, their respective positions had hardened.
